Q: What was your favorite childhood cartoon?
My favorite childhood cartoon was Pokemon. It was my escape and allowed me to be part of something that allowed me to connect with friends. I use to imagine Pokemon flying by my school bus to pass the time, and I aspired to catch them all. This dream wasn’t realized until Pokemon Platinum came out, then they created more Pokemon and I had to catch them all once again. Pokemon was the first movie to make me cry, and I still get teary when I see that scene.
Q: What animal would you be and why?
If I could be reincarnated as an animal, I would choose a wolf because I would be able to work together with others in a pack or go off and howl to the moon on my own as a lone wolf. Wolves are social creatures and I feel that this characteristic matches my own. Wolves are also very territorial creatures as well, which means I will not hesitate to protect those that I love and care about.
Q: What quality do you look up to in other people?
I look up to people who have the quality to face adversity or obstacles with a positive mindset and a firm grip of their surroundings. Although they may be facing the unknown, they feel their way through this and confront their problems rather than running away from them. The inspire me to do the same because it takes a strong individual to overcome such obstacles, whether they be mental, emotional, or physical.
